Easter Weekend Update

Over the Easter weekend I planted out our seedlings and picked up some plants that were nearly dead and going cheap. 

Image

These are a mixture of a rose bush with primroses I was given, to the left is a pot of wildflowers and to the right a snowball shrub. 

Image

Our selection of herbs are starting to grow. 

Image

 

More wild flowers and marigolds.  There is another pot like this. 

Image

 

Our pear tree, looking bear, it had a disease on the leaves so they had to go 😦 but hopefully enough are left that it will be ok, yes the grass is long and there are dandelions everywhere, just the way the insects like it :).

Image

On the left is our blueberry bush and on the right is a raspberry bush.  On either side of those are pots of wild flowers, marigolds and onions.  

Image

A mixture of flowers to attract the bees and butterflies along with medieval herbs and some strawberries. 

Image

Further down, our rose bushes, plum tree, apple tree and more wildflowers, looking forward to those coming up. 

Image

A closer shot of our beautiful apple trees, I’m training the roses upwards as they are meant to be ground covering, but they seem to be growing up and out, so making the most of it, ha ha, need to pick up a bottle from there!

Image

Then our strawberries and the bush that grew from nothing on a pile of rubble. 

Image

Our cherry tree and containers that collect rainwater. 

Image

Lemon balm and rocket. 

Image

Strawberries on the left that had been outside and rubarb on the right. 

Image

From the green pot on the left, runner beans, up to peas, onions, potatoes, spring onions, down to strawberries and in the middle will be beetroot. 

Image

At the far end peppers and tomatoes, then rocket, spinach, broccoli, aloe vera and cucumber which you can’t quite see. 

Image

Mint and Carrots.
